A Flower for Mandela

Sunday 31st August 2014 11am - 4pm;
Friday 5th September & Saturday 6th September 12 - 6pm
Sunday 7th September 12 - 3pm

A Freedom Festival special! FREE

Making begins for the poetic installation of clay flowers!
Learn to make a wonderful flower in white bone-china clay and leave it with us to plant into a unique installation to celebrate the 'Long Walk to Freedom' along the High Street in Hull!
The flowers - a universal symbol of peace and strength – are hand-made in white bone china clay and will commemorate and celebrate the freedom from oppression that Wilberforce and Mandela achieved during their lifetimes. Each flower will be unique and as individual as the person who has made it, making your Freedom message more poetic. The flowers remain unfired and will eventually disappear without detriment to the environment.

For families - children must be accompanied by an adult!

Planting takes place on Sunday afternoon.
